New Season of Pilipinas Got Talent Premieres This Weekend

Another season of ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ awaits.

Now on its sixth season, ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ will once again welcome some of the Philippines’ most unique and breathtaking talents. Whether they can sing, dance or perform spectacular and unusual feats of strength and skill, ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ has them all covered.

Joining in the fun are hosts Billy Crawford and Toni Gonzaga, along with judges Freddie Garcia, Angel Locsin, Robin Padilla and Vice Ganda. Also making its return will be the coveted Golden Buzzer, which will now be used by the hosts as well as the judges to determine which acts will make it straight to the semifinals.

Live auditions for ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ are currently underway, with the Visayas and Mindanao auditions already finished last month. For its opening salvo this weekend, the Metro Manila auditions will be showcased where the judges evaluate the area’s aspirants.

Last season’s ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ saw Power Duo emerge as champion, marking the first time in the show’s history that a non-singer won the competition. It also proved that ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ is more than just a typical sing and dance show, but rather a series in which all unique talents of various fields are given a chance to shine.

If last season was of any indication, then the upcoming sixth season of ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ should expect more of the same, if not better. That said, it will be interesting to see how this year’s cast will hold their own in front of both the judges and viewers.

Of course, if anyone performs exceptionally well, then the Golden Buzzer will serve as their ultimate ticket to the highest level of competition. With that, good luck to all the up-and-coming acts who will grace the ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ stage.

‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ season 6 airs every Saturday at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday at 7:30 p.m. on ABS-CBN.

The weekend experience on ABS-CBN just got better.

This weekend will mark the return of ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ to the small screen. Now on its fifth season, the biggest and grandest reality talent show in the country got a big boost with the addition of Vice Ganda into the team of judges, which also consists of Freddie Garcia, Angel Locsin and Robin Padilla.

The ‘Golden Buzzer’, introduced in the Asian, British and American ‘Got Talent’ franchises, will also make its debut on ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’. The ‘Golden Buzzer’ will determine the performer who deserved to go to the next level and avoid elimination in the process.

Let’s just hope that with the ‘Golden Buzzer’, ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ will not be a one-sided ‘singers’ show’ as they did in past editions. Trying to balance things out will be a big challenge for this season.

Season 5 of ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ will be hosted by Billy Crawford and Luis Manzano, and will air every Saturday after ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya’, and Sunday after ‘Rated K’.

Speaking of Luis Manzano, his other weekend show will now be seen twice. Starting this weekend, ‘Celebrity Playtime’ will not only air every Saturday, but also on Sundays as well.

This means that every day on ABS-CBN will have Luis Manzano on the small screen. In addition to ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ and ‘Celebrity Playtime’, Luis also hosts ‘Kapamilya Deal or No Deal’, which airs weekdays.

Sunday episodes of ‘Celebrity Playtime’ will take over the timeslot vacated by ‘Luv U’, which ended last Sunday. Thus, ‘Celebrity Playtime’ will now face two different GMA programs: ‘CelebriTV’ on Saturdays, and ‘Juan Tamad’ on Sundays.

One of ABS-CBN’s top-rated shows, ‘Celebrity Playtime’ now hopes to carry over its success on Saturdays into Sundays. As they usually say, ‘the more, the better’.
